Tauros GX -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Tauros GX Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tauros GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Tauros GX is a Basic, Colorless type Pokemon card, with a HP of 180.  It has a x2 weakness to Fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Tauros GX does not have an Ability but it does have three moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rage, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Tauros GX.  This card's second move is called Horn Attack, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 60 damage.  The final attack on this card is called Mad Bull GX, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 30 damage times the number of damage counters on Tauros GX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, first off, the way a Pokemon GX works is that it is used instead of a regular Tauros card, so you do not need to first play Tauros and then evolve it into Tauros GX.  In play, only one GX move can be used during the entire game, and once a Pokemon GX is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  The first thing you'll notice about this card is that all three moves require two Colorless Energy cards or one Double Colorless Energy card, so it is a very fast attacker, no matter the move you want use.  Because of this, this card would make an excellent starter for any type deck, outside of its high retreat cost.  This card would also work well on your Bench and then having a powerful move on another Pokemon that in addition to doing major damage to the defending Pokemon, it does damage to one or all of your own Benched Pokemon.  You could then keep Tauros on the Bench and accumalate damage there, then use its Mad Bull GX move doing up to 510 damage in one turn!  So if you're looking for a quick attacker, that has potential to one hit KO your opponent's Pokemon, this is a card that should be considered.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Pokemon GX overall.  Like I've mentioned several times in this review, I really like how quick this card is and how it has the potential to do major damage.  I know this card is over-powered, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great card to use in a deck!
